The Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act 2006 has been passed by Parliament to address the injustice done to tribal and adivasi communities and other forest dwellers. It confers legal entitlements on the lands they were cultivating for centuries. This paper looks at various issues with regard to implementation of the Act in the state of Andhra Pradesh. It investigates why the Act emerged in relation to AP. It also reviews the range of forest rights deprivations and how they came about. The authors consider the likely livelihood impact of such a pro-poor institutional reform on the people of the state.
